Redirecting a Domain

I'm sorry if I double post, but a quick search on the forum didn't yield any sufficient results about what I'm looking for.

I have a site hosted, let's say http://blah.somewhere.com and I purchased the domain http://blah.org (from godaddy fyi, you can't beat the prices :wink:)

When I tried forwarding the domain through godaddy's panel, it just does the silly frame forwarding. So with masking, the address bar on the browser will always indicate http://blah.org -- no path no nothing.

I tried addon domain by changing the nameservers to point to the host and using cPanel option there, but then it reverts back to http://blah.somewhere.com.

Any clues?

I have no access to the apache httpd.conf file whatsoever, so I can't mess with vhosts or mod_alias redirects to try things.

I would appreciate some help here, I'm quite the noob when it comes to domain names and how they actually work :P

Thanks in advance :)

PS.: This forum rocks :) Love at first sight!

Do you know if you have addon domains?

Yes in fact the host uses cPanel so I do have addon domains. But it doesn't seem to work that way.

Hmmm, I think i figured it out. It was a redirection I've done in cPanel that I didn't recall about. That is redirecting http://blah.somewhere.com to http://blah.somewhere.com/folder.

So when I used an addon domain it would redirect me to that url. How stupid.
